You are behind a firewall?

Try 'telnet rsync.openvas.org 873'.

What did you get? If you get nothing, you should check your
firewall settings.

Rsync with "rsync.openvas.org" (Port 873/tcp) must be allowed for

Alternatively, you could download the feed content on a different
system, outside that firewall, and then copy the files (scp) to
your openVas installation.
